Mineola Grad Up For Teaching Grammy

Audrey Rome, a Mineola High School class of 2005 and LIU Post alumni is a quarterfinalist in the inaugural Grammy Music Educator Awards, a new category announced this year to honor music teachers.

The Williston Park resident Rome was winner of the 2009 Caitlin Hurrey Collegiate Professional Achievement Scholarship at Post. As president of the college chapter of MENC – the National Association for Music Education, she initiated new outreach programs, including a music education program for home-schooled students, and a PreK-16 partnership program in which student teachers teach music to children with special needs in local school districts.

Ten finalists will be selected, including one winner, who will be flown to Los Angeles to accept the award and attend the Grammys, and receive a $10,000 honorarium. All other finalists will receive a $1,000 honorarium.

Semifinalists will be announced in August. For more information, visit www.grammymusicteacher.com.

Peter Zuckerman is running as the Democratic Party’s incumbent candidate for 2nd District on the Town of North Hempstead Council. The district encompasses the villages in the Mineola area. 

 

“Nine months ago, I was recommended by Supervisor Judi Bosworth and approved with bipartisan support of the Town Board. This has been a dream job for me,” Zuckerman told the

Mineola American, on explaining why he is running for office. “I had the pleasure of serving the residents of the incorporated Village of East Hills for 11 great years, but this job has given me the opportunity to expand the area I represent and, thus, the opportunity to be of service to a greater number of people.”

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
